I've made a good start on my Farm Girl Vintage project and I LOVE these little blocks!
I'm not gonna lie to you, the pieces for the 6" blocks are small and you do have to measure carefully and sew accurately.
But, the directions are excellent and I've had zero trouble so far. Of course, the very first block has 41 pieces! Best to get the hardest one over with right up front I guess. Just look at how great this 6" star turned out though.
Next up was the chick and that one was a breeze and so adorable. I want to make a whole little quilt with just these and one mama hen. There's a pattern for a hen in the book which we'll be making later on. Wouldn't that be cute?
I'll embroider the legs later. I was in a rush to move on to the mixing bowls block. Another cute block that was very easy to construct. First came the spoon.
Then the larger bowl was added.
What fun choosing just the right print for these. I'm so glad I went ahead and bought this fabric collection from Connecting Threads to add to my limited 30's print stash, now I feel like I have lots of options when picking out color combinations.
I may have only three blocks done so far and I may be weeks behind in this sew along but I'm having fun and looking forward to my time in the sewing room working on these. Isn't that what it's all about? If your considering joining me let's get moving. It's never too late to get started on something enjoyable.
